Description

The tour «Heaven's Door» is by anyone standards a challenge and diverse. The start is the car park for the cable car Savognin. From here the route passes by Dorf Riom and Burg Rezia Ampla and onto Tigignas. The castle provides the setting for the annual Origen Cultural Festival in the Raeto-Romansch language. From there the route takes a steep incline forest road and then a single track to Ziteil, the highest place of pilgrimage in Europe at 2433 metres.
A visit to the church is well-worth it. The giant church window affords an exceptional panorama over the Surses.
The downhill is pure joy for any biker who has no fear of demanding single trails. The way leads through the mountain huts of Munter to Salouf a great place to rest and enjoy the restaurant terrace. Then the last stretch leads back to Savognin.
